Social Work and stress seem to be terms that come together all too often. As Social Workers we ‘need to be resilient and assertive’. But what does that mean for individuals? How do you develop those strategies and skills to manage stress? And what do we even mean by stress within Social Work?
In this Online CPD Reflection, Dr Orlanda Harvey, Dr Louise Oliver and Tilia Lenz discuss how stress can impact on practitioners and how trauma that we experience at work can influence our personal lives. Includes insights into how supervision can be used as a tool to manage this and how organisational cultures can support workers to maintain their wellbeing.
